I’ve been using Coschedule for the past few weeks, and I can honestly say that I love it. I don’t know what took me so long. I have been looking at this program forever. I should have gotten it sooner. Coschedule is the best scheduling app slash plugin for your WordPress blogs and social media content. I can’t wait to show you all how I use this plugin. It is so easy and convenient to use. I have already started telling some of my other blogging friends about it. Every blogger should have an editorial calendar. Coschedule makes it simple.
What I love about Coschedule is that it helps you manage everything in one place, and helps you manage all your social media platforms in a way that isn’t time consuming. Coschedule looks difficult to use, but in fact it is actually very easy to use. If you feel like you’re not able to use it or you don’t understand, they have a ton of blog posts and videos to follow. They walk you through your free trial for the 18 days that you have it so that you can get the most out of your program.
I have really enjoyed using some of their features. The fact that you can use Evernote or Google Docs to compose posts and use them in sync with Coschedule is amazing. My personal favorite way to use Coschedule is to go back and find some of my popular posts, use the plugin at the bottom of the posts, and then repost them. It reignites interests in my older posts and then gives me extra content throughout the week that I schedule to Tumblr, Google+, Facebook, and Twitter. This is great for building and increasing traffic. Coschedule also shows your posts social media stats, so you can know just how much traffic you built.
Another way to use it is to use the plugin at the bottom of each posts to schedule them out to your different social media accounts on different days or even a month or so out. Then you can either log into your Coschedule account or use the plugin on your WordPress sidebar to pull up the Coschedule calendar. I use the calendar to drag and drop posts that I want to move around from day to day or week to week. This is one of the features I like the most because it saves me time. I don’t have to go back into each individual posts and change the scheduling options for each social media account that I use. That use to be so tedious and time consuming for me.
I don’t use this feature, but if I had a team of writers for the blog I could use Coschedule to message my team and keep track of each of their posts. Another feature I have yet to try is the feature that lets me compose blog posts within the calendar. When I looked at it the other day, I saw that it had a headline checker that makes sure the titles of your post are relevant and great for creating buzz on social media. You really can’t go wrong with this plugin. It really is the bee’s knees.
